On July 16, we unveiled the new Office, a cloud service that works beautifully with touch, stylus, mouse or keyboard on new Windows devices - from PCs to tablets. With this release, we're modernizing Office, and an important part of that is the introduction of new subscriptions. Subscriptions open a host of possibilities, and subscribing to Office 365 will be the best choice for many - especially families, people with multiple devices and small businesses.
With a single subscription, you can use Office across a wide variety of devices - everything from PCs and tablets to Macs. You can easily save to and access your documents from the cloud and personalize your experience with Office. We will update Office more frequently to support new scenarios, and subscribers will always be current with the latest innovations. Subscriptions also open new possibilities like integrating web services into Office in ways never before possible; in this release, we've added Skype calling minutes and SkyDrive storage, and in the future, we'll do more.
In this post, you'll find details on how to get the new Office 365 subscriptions for consumers and small businesses when available.
Office 365 Home Premium
A single subscription to Office 365 Home Premium covers the entire household. While you use a laptop, your daughter can use the PC in the den, and your son can use a tablet. You can each sign-in with your individual Microsoft accounts using your settings and accessing your documents, but you still need just one subscription to get:
Office 365 Home Premium, a single subscription for up to 5 users, will be available in both physical and online stores across 227 markets worldwide for $8.33 per month ($99.99 billed annually). A free 30 day trial will also be available online.
Office 365 Small Business Premium
In addition to Office 365 Small Business, the new Office 365 Small Business Premium is designed for organizations with 1-10 employees, and each user gets the following benefits:
Office 365 Small Business Premium will be available in both physical and online stores, including small business resellers, across 86 markets worldwide for $12.50 per user per month ($149.99 billed annually). A free 30 day trial will also be available online.
People who need Office on only one device can buy traditional Office suites. These offerings do allow you to save to SkyDrive by default and make it easy to connect to the cloud, but they are not available for multiple devices and do not include the latest updates or additional SkyDrive and Skype services. Prices start at $139.99 for Office Home and Student 2013 which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. Office Home and Business 2013 includes all the applications in Home and Student plus Outlook. Office Professional 2013 includes the applications in Home and Business plus Access and Publisher. In addition, Office Home & Student 2013 RT comes on all Windows RT devices and includes fully featured editions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote optimized for ARM devices.
Buy Office 2010 and get one year free of Office 365 Home Premium
Starting October 19, people who purchase Office 2010 or Office for Mac 2011 will qualify to download, for free, one year of Office 365 Home Premium or the equivalent Office 2013 offering, when available. Small business customers in applicable markets will also be eligible for a three-month trial of Office 365 Small Business Premium.
Subscription features and details are available here. In the coming months, we'll share information about Office 365 Enterprise and other business offerings. Until then, please try the customer preview yourself.
* OneNote, Access and Publisher available for PC only.
** Skype account required. Excludes special, premium and non-geographic numbers. Calls to mobiles are for select countries only. Skype available only in select countries.
Hello,if you would like the same kind of info in French, go on the Microsoft Office French Team Blog: www.blogoffice.fr/.../les-prix-de-la-nouvelle-gamme-office-2013-office-365-pour-le-grand-public-prix-moyen-estime
Could someone please explain this: "Ability to use Office on up to 5 PCs or Macs for a single user. Users also have flexibility to change their 5 devices at any time, and full featured Office applications are available for temporary use on any PC". I've signed up many in my business circle for Office 365 E1 plan, but in E1 there's clerity.
As in a small business evironment, one user may not be using FIVE PCs, so what happens, in regards to Office 365, when five different user uses five different PCs? And what's this full featured Office apps being available temporarily? I could get many to join this Office 365 Small Business Premium but not with terms like these.
($99.99 billed annually) Will this be the price world wide?
Or will there be the "Fake Australian Tax" added to this? As we know how Microsoft loves to change Australians an additional 25% for software.
@Andrew. $99.99 is the USD price. It is priced in local currencies worldwide, based on a variety of local factors. A few of the more prominent local currency prices are 119.99 AUD, 99.99 Euro, 79.99 GBP. More information will be available from your local Microsoft office.
@JagsDesai. If you get Small Business Premium for 1 person, she can install Office applications across all of her devices - up to 5 PCs or Macs. She cannot, for example, then equip 4 of her co-workers (each of whom would need a subscription). This is designed to address the growing trend of information workers who have more than one device on which they are getting work done. Regarding access to full-featured apps available temporarily, this is designed for when you're away from one of those 5 devices and need access to full-featured Office; you can sign in, stream the apps, do your work, log off and leave no trace on the PC.
Will new Home & Student 2012 version be allowed to be installed on 3 computers like 2010 one?
With a single subscription, you can use Office across a wide variety of devices - everything from PCs
Good stuff. Step in the right direction. Now how about a 1 computer subscription for about $20 a year? Not all of us have 5 PCs at home...
So instead of paying $150 once for a copy of Office Home and Student that I can use for a decade on 3 computers (I used Office XP until well after 2007 came out, and I still use 2007), over that same period I'm supposed to pay $1000 to MS for up to date office or $420 for no upgrades across 3 pcs? And if I go with the $1000 option, I get $10/year worth of extra skydrive storage that I (and someone with 5 computers and programs like DropBox or Live Mesh) don't need and ~ $17 per year in Skype credit I won't use? These plans are bad for consumers and just a tad ridiculous. I'm a big fan of Microsoft, and, even as a poor student, always thought Office was well worth the money. In fact, Microsoft Office is the only reason I haven't switched to Mac or Linux, but at these prices I think I'll just stick with Office 2007 until Libre Office or Kingsoft catches up with its features, or until I can save up for a Mac with iWorks.
For everyone in EU this means 30% more expensive Office.
A bit less affordable ...
Brilliant. Microsoft is finally coming into the real world. At $99 per household of 5 devices, Office is now cheap enough to drop Open Office for good. If what is reported is true, I congratulate Microsoft.
Yesterday Microsoft announced that they will be adding 2 new Office 365 Plans: Office 365 Home Premium
I think as a European Euro's 99.99 is to much, i think for home and students a price of 4,50 a month would be high enough.
As my kid is a student i will go for it, but 99.99 Euro's he will stay with his Office 2007.
@clint, 99.99USD is around 95AUD, so the "local factors" are worth AUD24....what a joke!!
How do the SkyDrive storage and Skype minutes work with multiple family members? Are they shared across multiple family member's Microsoft Accounts (née Live IDs), or are they linked only to the purchaser's account?
My own SkyDrive already has >20GB of space, as I was a user before the drop to 7GB, but my wife's doesn't (and my kids don't have/use SkyDrive yet).
Likewise, if we are to use the Skype minutes to "keep in touch with family anywhere" then it would be helpful if we could use them to call *each other*, rather than all calls having to be initiated by the one person with the minutes.
Can someone let me know when office 365 will be available for government entities, such as municipalities and law enforcement. I read an office blog in may, but no further details have emerged...
